New Year's Resolutions!

Sunday, January 04, 2009
Hi guys ~

Well, if you are one of the 3 people who still follow this blog - you're finally in luck! On the top of my New Year's Resolution list is to get back to Blogging! I am very excited to do so. There are so many things that have gone on, and I expect a great 2009. Let's do a little housekeeping:

2009 Calendar
The calendar reflects the current schedule for Serendipity so far in 2009. If there is an "S" on the date, then it's taken. Otherwise, feel free to contact me about any other available date.

You guys really like us ;-)
Well, we have been informed that we were selected AGAIN as one of the best Wedding Planners in DC by the Washingtonian Magazine. This accolade is especially humbling, considering I ran a super limited schedule in 2008 - I had to figure out how to balance two babies and a business at the same time! I think I've figured it out, and I am ready for a great 2009. Thank you to ALL of you (friends, fellow vendors, Brides, Grooms, parents) who took the time to vote for us. We are humbled and will do our very best not to let you down ;-).

2008 Couples - A look back
I have contacted all of the photographers that I worked with in 2008, so I could post photos. In this age of blogging, it's much better to SEE the wedding instead of just listening to me ramble on about the events! So, I will update you on the weddings from last year when I get all of the photos. I do have one event to talk about right now - Sarah & Mike from this past November.

I will be posting again in the next couple of days. As I mentioned in a previous blog - this is just a blog with my thoughts --- about my couples, things that interest me and things that might interest you. I don't get paid by anyone to mention their names. I don't have time for that. I also think this is the one place you can find out a little bit about me and Serendipity. I hope you enjoy!


Sarah & Mike - A wonderful event at the Omni Shoreham Hotel
I was hired by Sarah pretty much at the last minute - her wedding to Mike was taking place in about 6 weeks, and she knew she needed help. Thankfully, she called us! Sarah works on the Hill (Capitol Hill, that is) and she is a smart lady. I remember meeting with her in the COSI on Capitol Hill, and admiring her style. She had the most wonderful set of pearls on. I am not sure if they were real or not - but getting to know her, I doubt she wears anything but the REAL THING!! She reminds me a bit of Bree Hodge from Desperate Housewives. Not the drama - but the sense of impeccable style!

Sarah and Mike are a great couple, who have great friends. It was a pretty cold and rainy November Day. But, that didn't stop this couple or their friends from having a good time. The Omni Shoreham was a perfect venue for this wedding. That hotel is steeped in tradition. It's just a perfect backdrop. I have to say Sarah (yes, another Sarah!) from the Omni was FANTASTIC! She really knows her stuff, and was a pleasure to work with. I also got to work with my fav friends - Petal's Edge. I also had the pleasure of working with their photographer, Jenifer Miller from Freed Photography. She was such a joy to work with. We had to contend with horrendous traffic because of the G2 Economic Summit that took place that weekend in Washington DC. Jennifer kept her cool, and got some fabulous photos. I think you'll like them ;-)
